the united states and japan, between the foreign minister and secretary clinton. they're really starting to cement their relationship. i can sense the chemistry and the trust developing between the two. that's deeply gratifying. in addition, the secretary gave a speech really outlining -- to interact with asia when it comes to its fledgling international organizations. and so even though the trip was abriefiated, i think we got quite a bit of work done. as p.g.a. indicated, this is today we're marking the 50th anniversary of the u.s.-japan security alliance, the security partnership. it's no exaggeration to say that it has been the cornerstone and the foundation of everything that we've managed to accomplish over the course of the last few generations inin asia. and we hear this not just from japanese friends but throughout the region. over the course of the last couple of months, as the united states and japan worked together on a series of challenging matters, one of the things that's been most interesting and gratifying is how much we hear from other countries in the region, from sout

to either accept or contain iran or something like that is going to happen and here's the united states saying we want to continue the bush policy saying iran has to stop. it is in richmond. so why not change the policy to say okay we will allow iran enriched uranium under these terms and inspection and so on or otherwise we are setting ourselves up for failure and that is why i think it is wrong to make a test because if you need to test something you can't achieve of course you are going to get an f. >> i believe you can achieve something. i don't agree with that narrative and i don't believe the scenario with iran is automatically one that depends on complete -- >> what is achievable? >> what is achievable is changing the environment around iran was within the middle east and other great states like india, china and russia to essentially both running room to spread its influence through transnational networks also closed on other opportunities but then to offer what i think obama wanted to which was a constructive course, i am not a believer in that kind of hillary clinton's style of

the united states kept up? are we ahead of them, if you will, not only in improving airport security but in looking overseas in our intelligence gathering or are we still ahead of the game? >> we're ahead of the game but this is a war. there are times when i think because it's such an unconventional war that people in our country may forget it. it's a war with many battle fields. we are on the verge of really an extraordinary turnaround and success in iraq. president obama is committed to win the war in afghanistan, and i think we have an extraordinary team there that john and i visited a few days ago. and we will succeed in afghanistan. we've chased some of the al qaeda enemy to yemen, but the fact is that in the last year there have been more than a dozen known attempted terrorist attacks on the homeland of the united states. three of them broke through our defenses. two of them successfully killing people. one in arkansas earlier this year where a u.s. army recruiter was killed at his recruiting station simply because he was wearing the uniform of the u.s. army and then second, of

association of police chiefs. we represent law enforcement throughout the united states. this is a critical issue, no matter what size your agency is. if you are a large agency like new york or if you are a one-man police department, the ability to share information and communicate that information in a timely fashion is critical to public safety. we support wholly the efforts to remove the d-block from the auction and to provide that for public safety. what we need to see is leadership, here in washington. you have heard or you will hear from the public safety people who say how important this is that we are able to communicate and not just law enforcement to law enforcement but law enforcement talking to fire services to emergency services people. everyone must be able to communicate. they must be able to talk and send data between each other and it's very important that the people in washington, our leaders and elected officials take a leadership position and provide us with the tools so we can make our communities at home safe. >> thank you, chief lane. i introduce chief bob hendricks.

, and politics here in the united states. let's begin our coverage with dana bash. lots of emotion on this issue. >> that's right. the immediate question was, will senator reid step down, making calls, first of all, he said he won't, and making calls to democrats around town, especially in the senate. it seems as though there's no movement for him to do that, but reid, look, he's not a leader who is known as an orator, he's known for back-room dealing, and he has a big reservoir of support among senate democrats, but his advisers are still worried, they tell me, about the political fallout from this. that is why today he came out again for damage control. at home in nevada, harry reid's clean-energy event turned into an attempt to clean up a political event. >> i've apologized to the president, i've apologized to everyone within the sound of my voice that i could have used a better choice of words. >> those words reported in the new book "game change" saying then senator obama could get elented president, because -- reid tried to put his own explosive quotes in context, recounting his early priv
they are trying to do, has the united states kept up? are we ahead of them, if you will, not only in improving airport security but in looking overseas in our intelligence gathering or are we still ahead of the game? >> we're ahead of the game but this is a war. there are times when i think because it's such an unconventional war that people in our country may forget it. it's a war with many battle fields. we are on the verge of really an extraordinary turnaround and success in iraq. president obama is committed to win the war in afghanistan, and i think we have an extraordinary team there that john and i visited a few days ago. we will succeed in afghanistan. we have chased some of the al qaeda enemy to yemen, but the fact is that in the last year there have been more than a dozen known attempted terrorist attacks on the homeland of the united states. three of them broke through our defenses. two of them successfully killing people. one in arkansas earlier this year where a u.s. army recruiter was killed at his recruiting station simply because he was wearing the uniform of the u.s. army and
to the united states and the obama administration argues by keeping it open it's not only a propaganda tool but a tool that al-qaeda and its various allyies -- although is used to encourage attacks on the united states like the kind on christmas day. the united states says it's committed to closing guantanamo but the timeline is more extended than the president originally hoped. he originally set a january 10 meeting, as the deadline but it's clear it will not be closed before 2011 at the earlier. jon: i know the administration doesn't like the phrase war on terror but if there is a war on terror going on, yemen seems to be the new front, is that right? >> it is a newer front, as far as public perception. the administration would argue it has been focused on yemen since it arrived here, as was the bush administration to a certain degree. david petraeus, head of central command, was on yemen on saturday, john brennan told chris wallace he had been twice this year and yes, the administration is trying to beef up its counterterrorism to the yemeni government. one concession, if the united stat

united states senator. >> [cheering] >[ chanting "41"] >> everyday i hold this office, i will give that is all inmates to serve you well and make you proud. -- all in me to serve you well and make you proud. i will never -- thank you. while the honor is mine, the senate seat belongs to no one person or political party. as i have said before, this is the people's seat. >> [chatning "people's seat"] >> thank you very much. i spoke to the center. he has completed his work as the senator. i spoke to him. he is very gracious. he welcomes me as soon as i can get there. i want to thank him from the bottom of my heart. >> [chanting indiscriminately] >> i want to thank him very much. the people have filled the office themselves. i am ready to go to washington without delay. i also want to thank martha coakley. the contest is behind this and now we can come together. thank you. this special collection came about because we want -- we lost someone very dear to massachusetts and america. senator kennedy was a tireless worker and servant. he is a force like no other in this state. the first cal
of that bipartisanship was actually the president of the united states saying picking out easy to identify enemies, say, big banks and say we are going to go and -- go and punish the big banks because nobody likes the big banks and everybody hated the bailouts and even though we had a part in both of those things coming past, we all hate them now and i dare the republicans not to follow me. that kind of bipartisanship in here as well? >> i'm all for that. and i think that the president was also very effective in sort of using railying around the flag-type receiptic to essentially force republicans to plod along saying do we want to be second in the world in energy independence and alternate fuels. do we want to be second in china and europe? of course. nobody wants to be second. especially in this country. i thought that was very effective and i would like to see more of in a and more of the populist talks. bank bashing. that will be gold in 2010. we need to see more of that. >> clearly that's it. takeaway from last week in massachusetts is not they elected a republican, ted kennedy's seat was lost. th
really meant. but again it's this question of how do we handle people who try to attack the united states. it does sound more like what we think of as war. and that's their concern. there was this extraordinary scene at the arraignment today. it looked almost like a war zone, if you will. there was a security perimeter. there was a watch tower. so it's not how our criminal justice system is really equipped to work. can we do it sometimes? yeah. but if this becomes a routine thing, it's really going to stretch our justice systis tis. >> michael, follow up on your answer to alex using the phrase the war on terror. i'm not sure how i follow if that makes us any difference. how does it make us any safer if the president uses war on terror or war on al qaeda or war on hamas? >> as i said, i actually criticized both presidents. i think president bush called everything the war on terror, including the war in iraq, which dominated his whole administration. and in my view, that war had nothing to do with the war on terrorism. on the other hand, i think to put your head in the hand and not call maj
of the united states. three of them broke through our defenses. two of them successfully killing people. one in arkansas earlier this year where a u.s. army recruiter was killed at his recruiting station because he was wearing the uniform of the u.s. army, and second, of course, nidal malik hasan, the murderer at ft. hood. and the fourth was only by an act of god was not a disaster, and that's umar farouk abdulmutallab, the detroit bomber. in any war, when the enemy breaks through your lines, have you to regroup and strengthen your defenses. in this war, we cannot get any goal less than 100% success. that means we have to close the gaps. i think some people have to be held accountable for the mistakes, the human errors that the president acknowledged that enabled the nigerian bomber getting on the plane. >> if somebody -- excuse me for interrupting, but if somebody should be accountable, who? >> i think the investigation would show that. it's clear beginning with the department of state when the father came in, not only shoot game have been sent to the national counterterrorism center, but s

talks in new with united states wants north what is the position? >> i think if you go back to the discussion last month that ambassador stephen wadsworth and ambassador studentcam had in the john gone and both sides reaffirmed who the september september 2005 with a joint statement but if you go down the joint statement during number of elements outlined their. talks about the establishment of peace regime, normalization of relations among all of the parties concerned, an economic and energy cooperation. we've made clear is that we are -- if north korea says yes and comes back to the six party process, it makes a firm step toward normalization, then a wide range of other opportunities open up, but the first key here is that north korea has to come back to us, say yes and come back to the six preprocessor, start working on -- its obligations under the join communication statements and then when we're perfectly willing to have other talks. >> before the sixth party talks, what is the u.s. position? >> our position is we want to see north korea come back to the six party proce
. there were 12 firearms found at checkpoints around the united states. they have four instances of artfully conceived -- concealed, prohibited items being found at checkpoints and 24 incidents that involved a checkpoint closure, a terminal evacuation, or what they call a sterile area breach. i think that number is a little higher than normal, jon: jon any tsa problems reported? >> quite a few. in femed the bomb-sniffing dogs failed to test and were taken out of service. bad timing there. they had a scare yesterday at the bakersfield, california airport after a bag tested positive for explosives. no explosive. they opened the bag and found jars containing an amber-colored liquid, the contents of those jars apparently made two tsa officers sick. turned out to be jars of honey. of course we're learning the newark airport near you had problems with a security camera, the delayed response to a security breach. there was a big delay between the time of the breach and the time the terminal was closed down. in just the last few minutes there's an press conference at newark, one senator, bob menende

business. it's in excusable when national security is involved. that the president of the united states should tell the cia to issue guidance of the timely distribution of intelligence reports is unsettling to put it mindly. it's mind-boggling the president felt the need to instruct the director of national intelligence to take further steps to raise the standard of trade craft analysis especially analysis designed to uncover terrorists plots either this is boilerplate or the country is in a world of trouble. that's "washington post" this morning. here's the "wall street journal". failure to connect the dots. the antiterror education of president obama continued yesterday with the white house report blameing the white house report counter terrorism community as a whole from a failure to connect the dots of intelligence that would have prevented uma farouk abdulmutallab from boarding a plane on christmas day. mr. obama blamed no one in particular for the failure and not even george bush. in one sense this is a refreshing sense the president said the bucharest stops with him. what's your
that create jobs right here in the united states of america. >> oh, you know, i'm like that at ball game sometimes. i don't want to stand up for every pitch either. and the small businesses in this country that create jobs, not to mention the small business owners, most republicans apparently against them, too. >> i'm proposing that we take $30 billion of the money wall street banks have repaid and use it to help community banks give small businesses the credit they need to stay afloat.ç >> just about every week the federal reserve now giving out a list of the small community banks which have failed and folded, but not the massive banks that were deemed too big to fail. when the president called for getting some of their bailout money back, republicans were seemingly against that, too. >> but if these firms can afford to hand out big bonuses again, they can afford a modest fee to pay back the taxpayers who rescued them in their time of need. >> in the republican response virginia governor mcdonnell and some people standing around him saying we are blessed here in resources and we must
facilities all over the city. some places have been reinforced by doctors from the united states an overseas who have come here to help, that existed before. others are completely contained field hospitals that have been flown in and are up and running now. there is a big problem with coordination. units that have specialized care for things like orthopedic surgery which is desperately needed, or people who get bruises get sent to these specialized facilities and there's nobody coordinating it. there's just a complete lack of coordination. even the doctors on the ground don't know what other beds and facilities are available and because of the short animal of fuel, because of all sorts of other logistic problems it is very difficult to get all these patients moved around. as that happens people die because we're really getting to be a long way off from the earthquake now so increasingly, people who would have been just fine if they had gone to the equivalent of an american emergency room are now in a situation where they they're dying of infections because they're just not getting treatment.
and security. a united states military disaster relief team landed on a beach this afternoon. the military plans to soon send 4,000 more marines and sailors to the area. more help for a shattered nation. but even amidst all the destruction in haiti tonight, some folks have a new reason to smile. a rescue team made up of new york police and firefighters pulled a young brother and sister from the wreckage of a building after their aunt said they heard crying from the rubble eight days later. this photo shows the moment they pulled the boy free. we're told he and his sister seem to have no major injuries and doctors say they have absolutely no idea how the two survived for so long. >> i cannot explain like medically orifice logically how this happened. maybe it's a miracle. >> shepard: maybe it's a miracle he said, something certainly in short supply these days. we have supporters both in hatey's capital port-au-prince and to the west in the town of let's begin with steve harrigan in the capital city tonight. steve? >> shepard, in one medical tent set up by the university of miami, 20-amp sta
. so i urge the president of the united states, i urge my colleagues, now 59 of them, to say, stop. start from the beginning. sit down and work for america. do what's been done in the past, time after time after time. where we sit down and negotiate in good faith efforts. so far that has not happened despite the promises that the president made during his campaign. so i urge my colleagues together to say we've got to stop this process. we've got to stop this unsavory sausage making chicago style that's been going on and we have to sit down and open a honest negotiations with the american people and fix the health care problem which we can do together and that's what the american people wanted to do. again, i thank my colleague from north dakota. i yield the floor. >> senator john mccain on the floor of the u.s. senate. again the key word there was good faith. a lot of democrats, even those at the white house, don't believe the republicans negotiated in good faith and see too many republicans as interested just in accumulating political power by killing health care reform. so a bit
